Well, it still isn't ready for Vegas however I've been feeling pretty good about the progress especially since the project was started with a strategy of hope. In the past week or so I have successfully put this quad through many of the basic flight modes and everyone walked away with no broken bones and no blood spilled. A…

ArduCutter Finally Sees First Action!

ArduCutter gets airborne after the past week of building fun and a little embarrassment. It is all in the name. I recently read the line, "Multicopters are essentially flying lawnmowers.." from the ArduCopter wiki. This is not an exaggeration as my ArduCutter has cut me, and my grass. Of course I'd…

What I have left to do:

  1. Add Digital Camo to Parts of Wing
  2. add servos and connect wires to rudder and elevator
  3. possibly add ardupilot
  4. possibly add FPV flying

I'm looking for suggestions on any mods or upgrades I can do to this RQ-11.  I hope the Video was enjoyable and educational.…

GeoTagging Images on Mission Planner

Introdution

Geo-tagged aerial pictures are very useful for mosaic mapping as well as the creation of accurate 3D models from a terrain.

Michael Oborne added a great tool for injecting GPS data on the EXIF tags by using APM's telemetry log from a flight.

This tutorial was…

Scout Hexa really stable with Arducopter 2.4.1

I have been working on a hexacopter for aerial videography and photography.   The hexacopter is equipped with a ArduPilot Mega with sonar, gps, magnetometer and a camera gimbal.  After hours of tuning, I got the Scout Hexa really dialed in.

I really happy with the stability of the Arducopter code.  Here is a video demonstrating some of the ArduPilot…

Here a video a the ArduMega board (2560 or 1280) with the firmware ArduCopter v2.1.1b (JLN update for X-Plane) connected on the X-Plane simulator throught the APM Planner in HIL mode. The QuadCopter QRO has been modelized for X-Plane v9.0 (or greater) so as get a closest replication of a true QuadCopter UAV.

This is a very good method for testing all the features of the ArduCopter…
